Roundwood & District News 11th of April 2022


Are you interested in hosting a refugee for a few weeks or a few months? Or is there any other way you feel you could help a refugee when they arrive? We have just heard that the Lough Dan Scout Centre is accepting about 40 Ukrainian refugees this week. At the moment, they do not know what support they will need. We are trying to develop a local network in the Roundwood district. A welcoming face is always appreciated. If you would like to help in any way, please contact Anne Byrne (087) 292 5259, Claire 087 272 1110 or Siobhán 087 980 6943.  A Whatsapp group is being set up if you would like to be included.
